Southern Star Gift to Give Where You Live
The Southern Star Group is a proud partner of the Give Where You Live ‘BIG Program’, an initiative encouraging local businesses to make a difference to their community.
Give Where You Live is a non-profit service making annual grants to community organisations that aim to alleviate disadvantage in the Geelong region. This is achieved by funding programs to assist those most affected by income, education and health disadvantage.
Their aim is to address disadvantage in the Geelong region, where the Southern Star Group Head Office is located, by being the leading provider of philanthropic funds and activities; enabling people to reach their full potential without being constrained by health, education or income disadvantage.
Give Where You Live create positive social change by ensuring contributions have the greatest measurable impact on disadvantage, through mobilising resources, enabling partnerships and funding innovative programs.
The Southern Star Group is happy to provide support that has enabled Give Where You Live to distribute $2.06 million worth of funding grants to worthy organisations and causes in 2015.
These funds are allocated to many non-profit services across the varying categories of health & wellbeing, live & learn, and survive & thrive.
